I too read the majority of posts here but certainly am unable to reply to them all. I have a thread here that is read by several but only a few post. It does not concern me as those who want to post, will, and the posts I make hopefully help others. I find this a great community where answers can be found and questions put without fear of seeming stupid. I do not like nor use Facebook so I'm afraid I wont be able to follow your progress.

Not a problem at all just a far more active Community.
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

george, are we posting for the likes and the comments or to enjoy our readers ?

I personnaly post to enjoy people and I am not super bothered if people don't say thank you. it's a bit down to the style of the forum, the next buttom is underneath a post and to say thank you you have to go up.

I normally enjoy what somebody is posting, click next and off to the next poster.

regarding comments, again if somebody has something usefull to say great but a whole treat with only thank you for posting and great is also a bit boring, not talking about all sorts of non topic related answers

hopefully you see my point, see the read counter on your topic and you know that a lot of people are following you.

and btw, your platform lights are looking great , its about time that you start ballasting instead of beeing Mr grumpy

Changes nothing Maurits, I say thanks and comment frequently, just a courtesy thing nothing to do with grumpy at all. All the ballasting that is likely to be done has been.

I think this post pretty much echoes my feeling also George.
I follow your posts on Geominster and many other layouts with interest but don't feel the need to say thanks to every post or to receive thanks for my posts.
I don't do facebook, like many others here, and it will be a shame if we can no longer see your work on this forum.

Sadly it has far more activity than Forums these days. Check it out.

None of the Facebook groups get more activity than here.  Both the forum and Facebook have their pro's and cons.  If you want instant gratification for your photo's then I agree that FB is the way to go, but if you like to keep your layout as a thread so folk can follow your progress over the months/years, then the NGF is the way to go.  The NGF is a long term way to show off your skills.  It would be great if members on here would comment more on the layout threads, but I think that's the pro of FB in that it's instant to hit 'Like' or type and hit enter.

I am a reasonable new member and among the many silent admirers on this and many other threads on the forum.

Being new to the hobby, the forum is an invaluable resource of information from people like yourself who provide inspiration and "this is how I did this" information, which unfortunately, will most likely get lost in all the other Facebook posts.

I didn't even realise the Forum had its own Facebook page.  :uneasy: So I am not sure if the post you are referring to was on the forums Facebook page or another group on Facebook, but I couldn't find it after joining the Fb group  :worried:

As Tank already said, the mediums of the forums and facebook are very different, and it will be a sad loss to a very fine layout thread. I hope I can find your posts on Facebook but will continue to follow the layout threads here as a fantastic source of what can be achieved - hopefully I will start my own when I stop procrastinating and reading everyone else's threads, and also come out of the shadows in appreciation of the time and work that others put towards their forum threads.

I don't do Farcebook or Twotter and have no intention of joining either especially as some people would expect to be praised and grovelled to whenever they made a post.
So sorry I may look as if Ive no interest but I`ll stick to this forum   :(

Looks like the layout was going well, shame to hear that you've gone for the lazy (by this I mean that you decided not to take the time to upload photos to imgur, postimg, or any of the dozens of image hosting sites if you were having issues here, seriously you go to all the trouble of planning and making a great looking layout and fall at the last hurdle when you come to show off your work to the world? really?) and instant gratification route rather than using the forums to advance your and our own knowledge.

Such a shame that I will not be able to learn more from this post as I was just looking into Sundeala board and their cost and eco effectiveness compared to ply or other wood after reading through this thread.

Hope that it is going well and you are still enjoying it.

I am indeed still enjoying the building of Geominster, not done very much lately due to work commitments and the delay in Nelevator arriving. A shame that you never got to express your opinion while reading the posts, the silent followers only had to chip in and tick a box to encourage continuation of the progress of the build. Nothing to do with gratification but just satisfying to receive encouragement like a few good people did. A bit like playing football in front of a silent crowd it needs input to create the atmosphere. Good luck with your layout and I hope you find time to post your progress I am sure it will be of great interest to many.

The entire thread is still visible along with the fore runner Geominster where many lessons were learned culminating in dismantling it and starting over.

Hello Maurits, there are updates on my layout Facebook page if you want to see how it is going, as said before it is a closed group just ask to join, that way those interested can follow but the topic remains free of stupid comments so associated with Facebook. Geominster is the Facebook page just search for it if you want. Thanks, George
